Thanks Jim.  Forgive me.  I agree there is no room for political commentary.  I way over reacted to Quentin's comments.  Won't happen again.

Good afternoon from the Lake of the Ozarks.  Just a little cooool in Paradise today.  I enlisted in '71 and retired in 2000.  I was an Independent Duty Hospital Corpsman, Most shore duty up and down the East coast, 7 years in Japan, San Diego, USS Reeves (CG-24), we are having a ships reunion 9-12 Oct 2016 in San Antonio,  and USS La Salle (AGF-3) in the gulf.  A couple of tours with the Marines, taught at the Senior Enlisted Academy in New Port and then went to BUPERS in D.C. as the senior detailer for HM's & DT's.  Retired in New Orleans while stationed at the Enlisted Personnel Management Command.  My 410 is in West Alton, MO.  A few miles upstream from St. Louis.  Tim Miller and I did take our Commanders to the Rendezvous in Michigan City, IN several years ago.  I have had her for 13 years and don't have any plans to let her go.  Thanks again for your service in the Navy and I hope to meet you this next year.  Take care and let me know if I can be of any help.
